Katy Perry Compares Lady Gaga’s ‘Alejandro’ To A Fart Joke
I mean that has to be what she was talking about when she tweeted “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke,” on Tuesday (June 8), the same day Lady Gaga released the rosary swallowing, crucifix flashing during an orgy “Alejandro” video. At least she wasn’t bored.
Katy Perry may have kissed a girl, but she grew up with pastor parents and a background in gospel music. “I was raised in a very pseudo-strict religious household where the only thing on the menu was [gospel standards like] ‘Oh Happy Day,’ ‘His Eye Is on the Sparrow’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ — all eight verses of it,” Perry told MTV. “That led to me being 14 or 15, when I started going to Nashville to record some gospel songs, and to be around amazing country-music vets.” I wonder if that’s where she picked up the Elvis blue suede shoe look she rocked while making her way through LAX yesterday (June 8).
Overall the “Ur So Gay” singer sounds as offended as an entertainer as she is as a Catholic. I can see her point, I mean it’s not exactly original, but it’s commentary that Gaga, who also grew up Catholic, wanted to make coming from her own experience and I don’t think there’s anything cheap about that.
